SchoonerMISTRESS I always check weather underground. Find link here: Welcome to The Weather Underground : Weather Underground
It has a great weather marine site with all kinds of maps including wind and water temp maps, radar, satellite and a bunch of other cool stuff. While I usually check all three sites before we head out, I find weather underground to be consistently more detailed and accurate than weather.com or noaa.gov. Hope this helps!

Milford, Ma Weather-Chesapeake Bay Buoy Data

on the home page go to nautical and select your area. It steams the data so watch the map for a minute there is alot of info.

tommyt If you have a handheld VHF you tune it to Channel 2. They are more right then wrong, and give you a broad range of information. Certainly more reliable then network news.

You can also get NOAA information for your area online very easily.

I doubt he meant as in TV and broadcast radio weather reports. You can get up-to-date marine weather reports on NOAA weather radio (Radio Shack and many other stores carry the necessary radios--they're not overly expensive), on-line from places like Weather Underground, and, I believe from USCG resources.

CapnHand I've found that accuweather.com gives accurate weather forecasts 90% of the time or better. When they are wrong, it's usually on the conservative side; ie, they forecast a storm but it misses us. I use the NOAA data buoys to get an idea of what the water is like at the moment.

Sometimes weather or not I go sailing depends on the weather, and with my luck it will look like a nice day but it will turn out to be lightning and thunder on the water. any suggjestions on being able to tell what the weather has in store?
